Lawrence O’Donnell insists parent company NBC consider firing Donald Trump

(By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller) - They say you shouldn’t bite the hand feeds you, but that isn’t stopping MSNBC’s “The Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell.

In a brazen display of political loyalty trumping company loyalty, O’Donnell took to airwaves on his Thursday night program to suggest NBC “Celebrity Apprentice” host and potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is on his birther crusade in order to bolster his show’s ratings.

O’Donnell explained to his guest, Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, that since Trump has been making the media rounds discussing the birth certificate of President Barack Obama, there has been a jump in his NBC show’s ratings.
